. Moonshine Gardens 1989.
| From Moonshine Gardens catalog, 1989: FLOORSHOW - 36" E. D41-106: BROADWAY X EARLOF ESSEX - Silvery gray S. slightly infused old gold; stark white F. with medium ,dark red-purple plicata stitched borders; white beards brushed old gold. What a fantabulous show this does put on with the earlybirds in the spring and again late in the fall, weather permitting. November is its month of choice to rebloom which unfortunately will usually be too late for early winter areas but such fabulous beauty will be much appreciated even when it just comes once a year! The ultimate in form, with heavily ruffled, round flaring falls with overlapping hafts and it usually gives ideal stalks. A super grower like its sib LAS VEGAS and it too is fertile both ways. $30.00
